Billboard Music Awards 2015: Taylor Swift Dominates With 'Bad Blood' Video Premiere, 8 Wins

The singer nabbed eight awards and premiered her "Bad Blood" music video.

— -- The 2015 Billboard Music Awards was a Taylor Swift affair. The ceremony opened with her much-anticipated futuristic revenge fantasy video for “Bad Blood,” and the night continued to work in her favor. Taylor nabbed eight awards – including Top Artist – and even engaged in some congratulatory PDA with her rumored beau, Calvin Harris.

“This is such a good night!” she gushed more than once.

Spears – clad in a sexy black cutout bodysuit – showed she’s fully recovered from her ankle injury by giving an energetic dance performance. Azalea, who took home three awards including Top Rap Artist, debuted a shorter haircut with pink-colored ends.

The night also paid tribute to two major losses in the music world: blues legend B.B. King, who passed away on Thursday, and soul singer Ben E. King, who died late last month. Imagine Dragons performed a stripped-down version of Ben E. King’s classic, “Stand By Me.”

The three-hour show, broadcast live on ABC from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, was hosted by Ludacris and Chrissy Teigen.

The night's lineup also included:

Nick Jonas, “Jealous”

Meghan Trainor and John Legend, “Like I’m Gonna Lose You”

Ed Sheeran, “Bloodstream”

Hozier, “Take Me to Church”

Little Big Town and Faith Hill, “Girl Crush”

Tori Kelly, “Nobody Love”

Simple Minds, "Don't You (Forget About Me)"

Nicki Minaj and David Guetta, “The Night is Still Young” and “Hey Mama”

Empire stars Jussie Smollett & Bryshere “Yazz” Gray, and Estelle, “Conqueror” and “You’re So Beautiful”
